Entomology Seminar Series

The Department of Entomology sponsors a seminar series covering a wide range of topics and speakers. Seminars are normally held on Tuesdays of the spring and fall semesters from 4 -5 pm.  Please join us!

In addition to maintaining a high caliber of speakers, each year the department recognizes alumni and other scientists for their contributions to the science of entomology via the Distinguished Alumnus Award and the Theodore L. Hopkins Distinguished Colloquium Award. The students of the Popenoe Entomology Club also select the Popenoe Speaker each year and sponsor his or her visit to the department.

Seminars will be conducted remotely by Zoom or in person in WA 231. In-person seminars will also be offered online over Zoom. 

Please contact Dr. Cassandra Olds colds@ksu.edu with questions, for further information, or to request a Zoom link for a seminar.
